A truly sad tale
28 July 2018 | by felixcat-01819See all my reviews

Yes this flic was eye opening. The misogynistic ways of men are exposed here. Very much appreciated that the sex scenes are shown but heard looking into the faces of those involved, sans the initial one. A truly sad tale. The ending left me wanting a true resolution, but only getting an old ended tale was probably much better. No fairy tale, yet not truly tragic, all circumstances included. All countries must do a better job of exposing and stopping these crimes against our women.
